The Zapper!: "It Just Might Work!"
Posted: Tuesday July 29th, 2008 by

In an announcement outlining the streamlining of Vivendi operations, Activision announced five franchises the company would be bringing over: Crash Bandicoot, Spyro the Dragon, Ice Age, Prototype, and an unannounced title. Several games are noticably excluded from the list. Chief among them the much anticipated Ghostbusters: the Video Game.

Whenever I hear a game company use words like "restructuring", "retooling", "streamlining", or "ham sandwich", I start to sweat. For as popular as the Zapper may be, I really hate seeing games and/or companies go belly up. But, I was really looking forward to Ghostbusters. I don't think I need to worry too much though, I'm certain someone will pick it up if it really does get canned. That's why the flies in the comic haven't quite hit the zapper.

I can tell you this much though, crossing the streams and shooting the Zapper will likely end much worse than blowing up a giant marshmellow man. Burker King would totally stop selling the Whopper or something.

(This writeup subject to change when my eyes uncross.)
